There has been talk of doing a Bill & Ted 3 movie for some time, which would reunite original stars Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter.
Now it's learned it actually might really happen and it is closer than ever in doing so.
Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventures debuted back in 1989 and became a huge hit spawning the sequel, Bill & Tedâs Bogus Journey, cartoons, a live-action TV spinoff and video games.
EW.com caught up with the actors as well as original Bill & Ted writers Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon and asked about the possibility of a Bill & Ted 3.
âWe are hoping to close a deal with some financiers,â Ed Solomon said. âHopefully within the next month or so, weâll have news that will stick.â
It's revealed Bill & Ted 3 even has a director with Galaxy Quest's Dean Parisot, Steven Soderbergh is on board as one of the producers, and original producer Scott Kroopf is back, and so is actor Bill Sadler who returns as Death, in addition to cameos to be announced at a later date.
Plans for Bill & Ted 3 include that the script was actually written for free titled "Bill & Ted Face the Music," with the movie described "kind of like A Christmas Carol with Bill and Ted,â teased Solomon. âLooking at their lives, and really kind of rediscovering what theyâre about.â
Here is the description:
The result of their efforts is a script titled Bill & Ted Face the Music, which finds our intrepid explorers still struggling to complete the great work of their life. At the end of Excellent Adventure, futuristic mentor Rufus (George Carlin) told the teens that they would write music that would turn the world into a utopia. âYouâre told youâre gonna save the world,â Matheson says. âAnd now youâre 50 and you havenât done it. Now theyâre married, and it affects their marriages, and it affects their relationships with their kids, and it affects their everything.â
As it is Bill & Ted 3, expect time travel.
âOf course, there is a little caveat in that someone comes from the future and says: âNot only do you have to save the world, you have to save everything'â Reeves said.
